CRM Interface

Ready to make the most of your Jungo account and CRM interface? Consider upgrading to the modern and easy-to-use Lightning interface from the original Classic mode. 

Lightning is an upgrade to the Classic version of Salesforce’s user interface. Lightning includes an interactive home tab with visuals and reports to help you get a quick glance at your pipeline. Plus, you’ll enjoy many awesome custom features when you’re upgraded.

What is the difference between Classic and Lightning? 

One main difference is that the Lightning layout is symbol based. Symbols take the place of some words, which makes desktop movement easier. If you’re currently using the Salesforce Mobile App, you’ll notice Lightning looks very similar.

Another feature of Lightning is the handy “favorites” option. You can “bookmark” records within Jungo. This gives you a single place to store links to your most important records. 

In Lightning, reports and dashboards also have a new modernized look and feel. Overall, dashboards are much easier to read than in Classic.

What are some Lightning exclusive features?

Any new Jungo features and Salesforce upgrades and updates develop on the Lightning platform. So in the long run, it is in your best interest to upgrade now. Then, you have the option to use the newest features we have to offer. 

Listing Alerts

One Lightning only feature is Listing Alerts, which allows you to be in the know at all times. When a borrower or contact in your database lists their property on the MLS, you’ll instantly get a notification via email. From there, you reach out to the contact and determine how you can help them move forward. Since they just listed their current home, there’s a good chance they need a new mortgage soon. 

PrintPub

Another great Lightning feature is PrintPub with MLS. PrintPub is a newer Jungo feature. It allows you to create beautiful open house and marketing flyers by just typing in a MLS number. There are many options available in the collections, like co-branded open house flyers and EDDM postcards. 

Also, using PrintPub gives an extra layer of value to your realtor partner relationships. You can download the flyers as a PDF and send it out in a social media blast, through an email, or print as needed. So, this may help you create new connections with other real estate agents in your area after they see the quality of the flyers!  

The Property Listing 

In addition to PrintPub with MLS, which allows you to create custom marketing and open house fliers, Jungo also comes pre-built with The Property Listing. The Property Listing allows you to create a single listing property website for you and your realtor partners in just a few minutes. 

Marketing to Realtors

Additionally, the Property Listing includes the property’s open house schedule, local schools, and directions to all of the potential buyer’s favorite places. Digital marketing is an important part of the future of the homebuying process. So, being equipped with easy-to-use tools will set you apart from your competition. 

Jungo SMS 

One final feature in the Lightning interface is the JungoSMS add-on. All you need is a Twilio mobile number and then your outgoing and incoming SMS Messages are displayed right in your Jungo account for quick reference. 

Jungo SMS

You can also create SMS Templates if there are text messages you will be sending out frequently, like an introduction or a next steps text. So, this is another easy way to stay connected with your clients! If you’re interested in learning more about adding JungoSMS to your Jungo account, check out our webinar-on-demand
